Some climate facts:

 

Fact:  Man only emits about 6% of the annual CO2 emissions, the rest is from nature.

Evidence: Add up the numbers on the NASA drawing: http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/Features/CarbonCycle/page1.php  They show man emits 4.3% of the annual emissions (man: 9; nature: 210)

 

Fact:  Water vapor causes most of the greenhouse effect

Evidence: “it’s clear that water vapour is the single most important absorber (between 36% and 66% of the greenhouse effect), and together with clouds makes up between 66% and 85%”  realclimate.org/index.php?p=142

 

Fact: CO2 only causes 9-26% of greenhouse effect.

Evidence: “ CO2 alone makes up between 9 and 26%”  realclimate.org/index.php?p=142

 

Fact:  The rate of the current warming is statistically indistinguishable from earlier warm periods.

Evidence: “the warming rates for all 4 periods are similar and not statistically significantly different from each other.” Phil Jones BBC interview, question A, http://news.bbc.co.uk/go/pr/fr/-/2/hi/science/nature/8511670.stm

Evidence: Climate records from ice cores indicate that abrupt, global-scale warming events with amplitudes of up to 10°C ...within as little as 50 years.. (2.0°C per decade of “natural” global warming.)  CO2 concentrations remained flat and low...

Fact:  In most studies CO2 follows temperature, not leads it (a cause cannot follow the effect)

Evidence: “At least three careful ice core studies have shown that CO2 starts to rise about 800 years (600-1000 years) after Antarctic temperature during glacial terminations.” realclimate.org/index.php?p=13

(ignore their speculation that further warming “could in fact have been caused by CO2” - it is mere speculation as evidenced by their use of the term “could in fact”.)

Fact:  There has been no statistically-significant global warming since 1995.

Evidence: Major world climate records! Summarized here: http://www.sustainableoregon.com/warmingstasis-a.html

 

Fact: Actual temperature measurements show NO WARMING  since about 1920, which was before  man emitted much CO2.

Fact:  Minoan, Egyptian, Roman and Medieval times were probably warmer than recently.

Fact:  Glaciers retreated FASTER in the 1930s than recently

FACT: The cold waters of Earth’s deep ocean have not warmed measurably since 2005

Evidence: http://www.nasa.gov/press/2014/october/nasa-study-finds-earth-s-ocean-abyss-has-not-warmed/#.VKkWg3uul8E

 

Fact:  Current ocean rise is within historical norms.

Fact: Actual sea level rise is a harmless 7 inches/century

Evidence: NOAA: “the absolute global sea level rise is believed to be 1.7-1.8 millimeters/year. ‘    (Local)

Fact:  Solar cycles are a better fit to climate than CO2.

More Evidence: “...most of the temperature trends since at least 1881 can be explained in terms of solar variability, with atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations providing at most a minor contribution.    Soon, Connolly, and Connolly   

 

Fact:  Man’s CO2 has never been proven to cause dangerous warming.

(If you know of actual proof, don’t tell us- go directly to the Nobel prize committee and apply for your Nobel Prize!)

 

Fact:  The IPCC says the earth may have cooled since 1998 or may have warmed - they don’t know because the amount of warming they claim is less than the uncertainty.  

Evidence:  “As one example, the rate of warming over the past 15 years (1998-2012; 0.05 [-0.05 to 0.15] C per decade), which begins with a strong El Nino, is smaller than the rate calculated since 1951 (1951-2012; 0.12 [0.08 to 0.14] C per decade). {1.1.1, Box 1.1}“

Fact:  A careful study of climate history showed that there is a strong likelihood that the major portion of temperature change in the 20th century was due to natural variations.

Evidence:  the Holocene records up to 8000 years before present, from several ice cores were examined. The differences in temperatures between all records which are approximately a century apart were determined, after any trends in the data had been removed. The differences were close to normally distributed. The average standard deviation of temperature was 0.98 ± 0.27 °C. This suggests that while some portion of the temperature change observed in the 20th century was probably caused by greenhouse gases, there is a strong likelihood that the major portion was due to natural variations.

Fact:  Cold kills 20 times more people than heat

Evidence:  The study — published in the British journal The Lancet — analyzed data on more than 74 million deaths in 13 countries between 1985 and 2012. Of those, 5.4 million deaths were related to cold, while 311,000 were related to heat.
